WIZARDRY ONLINE, HARDCORE RPG MMO LAUNCHES
Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) today announced that Wizardry Online, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) rebirth of the classic fantasy franchise, is now available for PC players in North America and Europe. This free-to-play game offers new players and franchise veterans a fully re-imagined Wizardry game that stays true to the franchise's trademark features: hardcore gameplay, intense difficulty, party-based combat and permadeath -- where when you're dead... you stay dead!
"Wizardry Online is the most hardcore fantasy MMORPG ever created," said Todd Carson, Senior Producer, Sony Online Entertainment. "The difficulty level is insane and delivers a challenging, immersive free-to-play experience that today's players want and demand, while also capturing the true essence and heritage of the Wizardry franchise that players and fans have come to know and love over the past 30 years."
Developed by Gamepot Inc., Wizardry Online challenges players to earn levels in a world of devastating dungeons where crimes taint their souls and the threat of permadeath a single mistake away. With deadly traps, mind-bending riddles and enemies at every turn, players will choose either a life of hardcore adventuring, collecting items and raising money, or the criminal life of taking their fortune by force.
